I Will Miss Things Like This When I Retire This Blog




When I retire this blog I am going to miss things like this. I have called these type of posts "You got to be kidding, right?" This is so so sad. It is sad because it shows the level of mentality that has invaded the evangelical/fundamental world.

We have come to think of God mystically. We no longer ask God for certain things that we may need or want with the expectation and appreciation for God's will to be done. We now expect God to perform like a genie from a bottle or maybe like Samantha Stephens.

If God were to walk through my house and take away all my worries, illnesses, and to heal my family and friends, bring quiet where there is chaos, light in darkness, and oh yes, the cherry on top -put love in our hearts, where would He find means to grow us or stretch us? How would we enter into His sufferings? 

This is further evidence of how the dumbing down of the gospel has lead to an excellent crop of tares in the church.
